One would think that sleep was the easiest thing to achieve since so many people attest to being able to do it with their eyes closed! I jest, but on a more earnest note, in a working world where advances in technology, late-night and early-morning deadlines, and a competitive 24/7 culture all take precedence, sleep can be elusive and often relegated to the bottom of the priority pile.
How We Are Helping Businesses Like Yours...
Like it or not, email captures our attention! Without a strategy for mastering and managing your email, its distracting and addictive nature will slice your hours into unusable time confetti. As knowledge workers, we now (on average) spend a massive 40% of our day inefficiently multitasking; we check email and IM every 6 minutes and spend just 2.8 hours a day on productive tasks (RescueTime, Work Life Balance Study).
When you spend large portions of your day in a state of fragmented attention – taking a quick glance at your inbox, another quick glance at messages on your phone etc., you end up reducing your capacity to concentrate. And so the cycle worsens; with poor attentional intelligence, you’ll spend more time jumping from task to task, resulting in things taking longer and feeling harder than they need to and increasing your stress and frustration.
Are you a successful manager or leader, accomplishing great things, wondering how to find extra time to get to the next level or increase productivity? Did you know there are ways to delegate more effectively?
